The markets took a hit this week as the Feds raised interest rates but the bond market took off big time. European stocks are dropping due in part to Trump’s trade policies. And China is more in trouble each week as we follow them. Oil and Natural Gas both up this week. Poultry and hogs up slightly. The 10-year treasury moved up to 3.22 percent which should attract some foreign investors to purchase those guaranteed bonds. Inflation is still under control in spite of the markets roller...

I-185 is a proposal that will be used to fund Medicaid that Montana is going to be on the hook to pay for. Proponents feel that a tax on smoke products is a good way to produce the income needed to fund Montana Medicaid. Their argument is that if you don’t use smoke products then you won’t be charged the tax so it has zero effect on you. Opponents feel that it’s not enough money and that an additional tax may reduce the number of smokers and reduce the amounts collected. There is also a...
